@Belt-Fed please create your intro post and tell us how the hell to belt feed that (which I love)
LOL, ok I will. if I can figure out how to,
yeah that one is really hard to belt feed. I love black powder shooting. I do a lot of it. think I went thru 7 pounds of black powder last summer. well, that may not be a lot but it is to me.
Those rifles (or not) are just as sexy as any belt fed MG
I think you’ll manage
well I got a couple targets wrong on that last pic.
Didn’t do so good with the flinter at 50 yards this day. but it’s ok. a bad day at the range beats work anyday.
I have a friend who built two black powder guns. A “Kentucky long Gun” and a pistol. Both I believe .50 Caliber.
I count about 10 shots on that target which tells me you’re a patient man.
I personally don’t have the patience to reload black powder and the frequent cleaning is tedious at best.
My aforementioned friend got a little lax with cleaning and his pistol suffered a small but fatal explosion. (Fatal for the gun that is. He got away with minor cuts on his hand.)
He no longer shoots BP.
Kinda sounds like he didn’t push the Ball against the powder charge. There are powder substitutes that don’t burn as dirty. but I always use BP. but I clean mine up when I am finished usually and swab the bore every second shot.
Where’d you get the brass catcher?
YOU’RE married to one! Mark will catch the hot brass for you!
Got the brass catcher at LGS and got this one at Midway, think they have the one that mounts on gun too.
Keeps my reflexes quick.
But actually women make better brass catchers. You know cuz… cleavage.
